PGX (PolyGlycopleX®) is a patented super fibre complex made up of 100% natural, highly viscous polysaccharides. When taken with meals, PGX expands in the stomach over a 30-minute (or longer) timeframe. This process creates a feeling of fullness by absorbing water and filling the stomach while slowing digestion. This slows the absorption of carbohydrates, effectively lowering the glycemic index of the food.
By slowing the release of glucose into the bloodstream, PGX levels out the peaks and crashes of the unhealthy blood sugar roller coaster. This helps you feel full longer, reduces food cravings and unhealthy between-meal snacking.
Protein promotes weight loss by increasing the feeling of fullness, so you consume fewer calories. Plus, the body requires more energy to digest protein, so it burns more calories digesting a high-protein meal.
Protein improves blood sugar control when it contains L-leucine, an essential amino acid that modulates insulin signaling and regulates glucose use by skeletal muscle. The whey protein in PGX Satisfast provides all the amino acids essential to human health, including L-leucine. PGX Vegan Satisfast provides the same amino acids by combining proteins from grains, legumes, and seeds.
The patented super fibre complex in PGX can bind several hundred times its weight in water and stomach fluids, far more than other soluble fibres like psyllium or oat beta-glucan. PGX is backed by over 10 years of research and development along with extensive pre-clinical studies and clinical trials conducted in the United States, France, and Germany. PGX is 100% natural and non-addictive and safe for consumption, with no serious side effects.
